Advantages: Sleek, Stylish, Fast, Good Viewing experience, good side, good price
Disadvantages: Need More apps,
I have had a playbook for the past 3 months now and had concerns as i am use to using apple products, however i was pleasantly surprised with many of its features. Don't get me wrong it also has its faults but what doesn't.
With legally side loading possible on the playbook there are many many cheap good and working apps now available for this tablet, not as many as for the ipad but still enough with more and more android apps coming every day!
I love the way the playbook looks it has a nice design and in my opinion is a better size when comparing it to the rival ipad. Its sleep stylish and has a professional look about it. I have yet to receive a scratch on it and cant fault its stylish looks.
Screen and sound
The screen is amazing when viewing hd films in 1080p the pictures are crisp and perfect and remain that way when connecting it to your hd tv with the hdmi mini lead. There is a good level of sound coming from the devise and a speaker is not needed if your not interested in loud booming music. The way the touch screen works is smooth and stylish too once you have got use to how t works as the frame of the screen is also touch sensitive to enable you to view settings ect. This works well for me and i find myself wanting the iphone to do the same after being on it.
The browser is relatively fast and you can view everything unlike the ipad. The pinch screen zoom works well and again is relatively fast. It allows multiple pages being ran through tabs and is easy to navigate round weather your a regular blackberry user or not.
Media on this devise is nicely set out its all clear to view and understand and with the 1080p screen the video and image viewing is a pleasant experience. It is also an advantage that you can then view it all on your tv screen in hd with just a small cheap purchase on the hdmi mini lead. This for me is amazing and i use it all the time as you can also play games this way along with browsing.
The back camera records in 1080p for amazing video recording and relatively good image taking and the front camera is also of a good standard and does not disappoint. I do believe that both cameras could be better quality when taking still images and it doesn't quite have the edge of a smartphone or a digital camera which could maybe come in a later model.
I would definitely recommend this tablet as you are definitely getting your moneys worth especially with android adding more and more apps daily. Yes other devises have more apps available but you pay for that. This has the best video playback i have seen on any other tablet and good sound quality. It loos stylish and sleek and gives off a professional look i would recommend this as i have loved every minuet of it and cant fault the price !!
Summary: Overall a good product and i wuld reccoment this to people
